31 Days In May: part 18

More Radio Times billings to identify, this time from March 1989:

1) Consumer advice, misprints, mishaps and real-life humour drawn from your letters.

2) As a hippie community come to the outback to commune with nature, Geoff finds the city isn’t all he remembered, while Chris has to deal with a difficult patient dying of emphysema.

3) With the aid of international experts and personalities on the satellite link, xxx goes world-wide to test the trends, plunder the programmes, and take a look at what’s on everywhere, right now.

4) “I want some straight answers Sally – I want to know what’s going on.”

5) Rock for grown-ups, including Brian Wilson, Robert Cray, Malcolm McLaren and Huey Lewis.

    Radio Times would have still been BBC only back in 1989, wouldn’t it?

    1. That’s Life
    2. The Flying Doctors?
    5. The Late Show?

  3. Chris Hughes says:

    I think 3 must be Saturday Night Clive (“‘allo Clive!”), those “personalities on the satellite link” no doubt including Vitali Vitaliev.

    I was thinking 5 might be Rapido, but would they have had Huey Lewis on?

  4. Phil Norman says:

    5. must be Wired, mustn’t it? Unless it’s Rock Steady. Either that or it’s Friday at the Dome.

  5. Ian Jones says:

    4 is actually a billing for Neighbours, while 5 is indeed Rapido.

  6. Matthew Rudd says:

    Who was the Sally in Neighbours in 1989 then? I can’t think beyond Kate Ritchie, but that was a different soap.

  7. fl3m says:

    According to The Internet, Sally was the half sister of Des.


  8. Matthew Rudd says:

    Bloody hell, I really don’t remember her at all, and I was Neighbours bonkers in 1989.
